THE JUNIOR COLLEGE REMEDIAL PROGRAM.
ROUECHE, JOHN E.
A REVIEW OF 20 DOCUMENTS IN THE ERIC CLEARINGHOUSE FOR JUNIOR COLLEGE INFORMATION WAS THE BASIS FOR THIS REPORT ON REMEDIAL INSTRUCTION. MOST JUNIOR COLLEGES, HAVING AN "OPEN DOOR" ADMISSION POLICY, ARE ENROLLING INCREASING NUMBERS OF LOW ABILITY STUDENTS, AND ACCEPT REMEDIATION AS A LEGITIMATE FUNCTION. WHILE REMEDIAL PROGRAMS ARE COMMON AMONG JUNIOR COLLEGES, MOST AVAILABLE MATERIAL ABOUT SUCH PROGRAMS IS DESCRIPTIVE, AND THERE IS LITTLE RESEARCH EVIDENCE OF THEIR EFFECTIVENESS. LACK OF SUCCESS APPEARS TO BE DUE TO FAILURE TO FORMULATE APPROPRIATE OBJECTIVES, INADEQUATE STUDENT SELECTION PROCESSES, AND LACK OF TEACHERS QUALIFIED FOR SUCH PROGRAMS. RESEARCH IS NEEDED FOR EVALUATION OF PRESENT PROGRAMS AND FOR A FOUNDATION ON WHICH TO BUILD NEW REMEDIAL SERVICES. (WO)
